  • Some notes...
  • ...are here.


Megaton only appears in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

  • The bomb in the center of the town and the people worshiping it are likely a reference to Beneath The Planet of the Apes, which features a cult worshiping an undetonated nuclear weapon after the modern world has been destroyed.
  • In the Japanese version of Fallout 3, the quest to blow up Megaton has been completely removed due to its "parallels to real historic events" quotes Official Xbox Magazine[1]. They are referring to the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
